Beautiful board. I like the drawers for storage too. I love organizational project in general and having a place to store the pieces makes it complete!!

Come to Michigan…we have walnut all over the place!!

Thank you Jim. I ordered the Maple and Walnut from Keim Lumber, out of Ohio. Nice selection, but a tad pricey.
